And I'm completely undone! Cheated, duped, conned - call it what you want.
I signed up with haloscan, fascinated by its assistance for comments. Once you sign up, it removes all your old comments and tells you you can have them back if you pay US $ 12.
Welcome to the online version of mugging!
I'm sorely upset and I'll miss your comments, but I'm not going to pay anyone who holds me to ransom. I have half a mind to go back to the old comment format, except that it wont help at all.
I won't have your comments, but at least I'll think before I leap next!
